    On Friday, July 31, Applied Motion Products hosted students from the local non-profit organization Digital NEST for a tour of our Watsonville headquarters. The purpose of the tour and visit was to see a large format, commercial 3D printer in action and learn how integrated stepper motors from Applied Motion play a critical role in the functioning of that printer. In the days leading up to the visit, the students participated in a 3D modeling and printing workshop provided by the Digital NEST.

  • New 0.9 Degree Step Motors

    Jun

    Applied Motion is pleased to announce the addition of 0.9 degree step motors to our product offering. 0.9 degree step motors are advantageous when a microstepping drive is not available. Because 0.9 degree motors have twice the step resolution (400 steps/rev) than 1.8 degree step motors (200 steps/rev), they run inherently smoother when driven with full or half step drives.

  • Using a Step Motor as a Generator

    Jun
    02

    Use a motor as a generator, you say? Surely those are completely different things. Turns out, they aren’t. If the motor is driving the load, it’s a motor. If the load is driving the motor, it’s a generator. Most of the motor applications I work with involve point to point position control: in getting from Point A to Point B, the motor must accelerate to some speed, then decelerate such that the motor speed reaches zero just as we arrive at Point B. During acceleration, energy is supplied to the motor as it drives the load.

  • Did You Know? New 3D Printer from 3DP Unlimited

    Jun

    Applied Motion Products recently took delivery of a 2nd generation 3D printer manufactured by 3DP Unlimited. This new 3D printer is one of the largest available with a work area of around 1m by 1m by 1/2m. This massive work area allows developers to explore the characteristics of large scale prototypes quickly to either confirm performance prior to tooling commitment or make a functioning part in the case of one-off unique requirements.

  • Did You Know? Bit-wise AND Digital Inputs in Q Programs

    Apr
    28

     All Q programmable drives provide digital inputs that can be used singly or in combination. In programs where only a single input must be examined the TI (Test Input) command is commonly used. The TI command can be used sequentially to test many inputs one right after the other, but it can be cumbersome to create a decision tree in this fashion. A better method may be to bit-wise AND the I/O register. The result is a number that represents the ON & OFF conditions of only the inputs of interest.
